Very reluctant sale of my Lotus Elise Sport 160, number 9 of the original 50 limited edition SVA cars that has the full 160bhp.
I always desired to have a Sport 160 having previously owned a standard Elise in my youth and it has not failed to disappoint! The first owner enjoyed many European tours in it while ensuring it was maintained to a high standard. As a result it comes with a full service history and a folder of receipts, old MOT’s etc. The second, and last owner, only sold the car as he was moving house and had no where to keep it.
I purchased the car in June last year with the idea of refreshing it and restoring it to its original glory and then taking it on track this year. After completing many hours work to it and enjoying some excellent road trips I am now faced with the dilemma that after all the hard work and money I have spent on it I will only end up either damaging it or driving like Miss Daisy! With that in mind, I have decided to put it up for sale and will take my much rougher Mini Cooper out instead. If it fails to sell, I will happily use it for summer driving needs.
During my ownership I have replaced/fitted the following:
Had all brakes refurbished and fitted uprated brake hoses
Fitted Ferodo DS2500 pads – front and rear and replaced brake fluid with ATE Super Racing
Complete suspension rebuild – powder coated all wishbones, replaced all bushes, bolts etc with new and fitted Bilstein S2 suspension (original available). In addition, fitted the Spitfire uprated toe link kit while also replacing all 4 wheel bearings
Refurbished anti roll bar and fitted new bushes
Fitted EliseParts quick rack and EliseParts quick shift gear lever (originals available)
New Exedy Clutch and lightened Flywheel balanced and fitted with new clutch slave cyclinder and support bracket
Steel cage diff bearings fitted
Fitted Hurrican induction kit (original available)
Fitted S2 Probax seats (originals available) and a new Yassa battery
Fitted 52mm Throttle Body and TPS with a new idle control valve
The previous owner also fitted new Yokohama AD08R tyres prior to me purchasing the car which have very little wear having only covered a few thousand miles. The car also comes with an after market stainless steel exhaust – I am not sure of the make but it sounds great!
The body work has the usual road rash to the front clam and it has some bubbling to the engine cover but is in otherwise excellent condition.
The current mileage is just over 58k miles and the MOT is valid until October 2019. Should the asking price be agreed, I will arrange for the vehicle to be given a fresh MOT and service.
The complete owner's pack is present along with most previous MOT certificates and a substantial portfolio of service invoices. Any inspection is warmly welcomed and the one I had done is available for viewing. More photos and videos available on request.
